How to repaint track fairing?

Hey fellas, what's the process if I decide to repaint my track plastics?

Do I sand everything down to the primer? Or, can you use some kind of paint thinner to remove the old pain and then sand?

Suggestions or prior experience would be great. I tried searching, but using my phone right now and its a pain.

Thanks

you can use the existing paint as a primer with some simple 3m scuffing.
